TWISTED SISTER's Come Out And Play - November 9th, 1985
TWISTED SISTER's fourth album, Come Out And Play, was released 38 years ago today (November 9th, 1985).
Last year Dee Snider spoke to me about the album: “‘Leader Of The Pack’, that was a misstep, but more because it was the wrong time. That song we used to play in the bars, and the fans would love it. It was on our first EP, with ‘Under The Blade’, ‘What You Don’t Know’, ‘Shoot ‘Em Down’, and ‘Leader Of The Pack’, for Secret Records before Under The Blade. So we would play it on tour for Under The Blade and the crowd would love it. So I thought it was a natural thing to bring back and redo, and we thought it was a big hit, but it was too slick, too produced, the video was too cartoonish, It had lost the snottiness of these five guys in drag doing it in a biker bar, which is originally where the inspiration came from, you know, ‘Fuck you, leader of the pack!’. Timing is everything. There have been some missteps and unfortunately this seems to be one of them. Talk about leaving a scar (referencing his 2021 solo album Leave A Scar).”
